Archaea Sport Structures that carry genes among microbes

EEarly arth lifeforms eventually took one of three different paths, forming the domains of Eukarya, Bacteria, and Archaea. These domains have been evolving separately for billions of years. Recent evidence suggests that the boundaries between the three domains are not so clear cut. Studies show that members of different domains can swap genes back and …
